Clothing Design: Seven Cycles Wool Trainer Jacket, Full Zip Winter 2012

September 20, 2012

in Clothing Design, Graphic Design

Seven Cycles has only offered a winter trainer a few times over the years – and only once with Woolistic.  This is a matching piece to the long sleeve wool jersey; similar design but subtle changes.  This is a very limited run.  I’m guessing we’ll sell out within a few weeks.  We have reasons for doing what we do.  Not always good reasons, but reasons nonetheless.

Wool Jersey Seven Cycles Winter 2013 back

It’s a nice piece that is long overdue to be back in our line.

Project timeline in reverse:

February 21, 2013  |  The Seven Cycles 2013 Winter wool jersey arrived today.  At least, the first few did.  It’s a very different design than the maker has done before.  It was a challenge but I think it was worth it.  We’ve got two styles:  full zip medium weight wool.  And a trainer jacket that’s a slightly heavier weight, with a slightly different look.  This project has been a lot tougher than I thought it could have been.  The design, sourcing, and deadlines were ongoing frustrations.  The finished piece is great – and that’s what really matters.

November 20  |  Working on three winter pieces for Seven Cycles.  A trainer, a medium weight wool jersey, and a lightweight long sleeve jersey.  All three are different, multiple sources.  All for the 2013 season.  Posting more soon.

November 5  |   Finalizing the Seven Cycles winter wool jersey today.  Waiting on a quote.  The design is a bit unusual.  Posting images soon.

October 30  |  Waiting to hear back from the manufacturer about whether or not our design is possible.

October 24, 2012  |  Wool Jersey design for Seven Cycles.  This is the 2012 winter version.  We’re working with Woolistic on a different style that I’m not sure they’re going to be able to do for us.  Fingers crossed. Timeline is tight – what a surprise.
